Overview

Bristol & Avon Transport & Recycling’s primary revenue stream is moving and re-using subsoil and recycling hardcore waste to produce recycled aggregates.   We have a fleet of over 30 HGV tipper vehicles which require flexible management to maximise the tonnages hauled across Bristol and the South West.  Please take a look at our website to get a feel for our services.

As the waste and construction industry moves closer to sustainable practices and away from Landfill disposal, the opportunities to diversify are increasing.  B & A are already making strides using alternative materials such as pulverised fuel ash from power stations as fill material.  End-of-life wastes are also being treated to generate light-weight aggregates for pipe bedding and block production.  Moving materials under the CL:AIRE CoP has become the first option to legalise bulk movements quickly while still complying with the EA legislature.  We require fresh and promising talent to help further our expansion into new areas such as these.  We will nurture your development with full training both in-house and externally to ensure your professional development and enhance your contribution to our company.
